Sinful Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownies {triple threat!}

This past Saturday, Anthony had the ‘privilege’  (if that’s what you want to call it) of running yet another marathon.  He had been carb loading all week long in preparation and on Friday night, he left to go to Logan.  K was lucky enough to go with him.  Anthony’s sister was running with him so her husband and son were able to spend Saturday morning with K.  She even got to run the last 2.2 miles with her aunt and cross the finish line with her.  I can’t tell you how proud she was. 

Anthony was even more proud when K told him that she wanted to someday run a real marathon with him. 

Well, Saturday was also the ‘big game’!  Utah vs BYU!  I won’t gloat but….




{Cougar fans, can we still be friends?} 

Anyway, after running a ridiculous 26.2 miles, Anthony had to drive his sore legs, blistered feet, and raw nipples home.  Yes, I said nipples!  You see, it rained throughout pretty much the whole duration of the race meaning that all the runners had blisters covering their feet and the males (at least most of them) had bleeding nipples… Anthony was one of them. 

The proof was on his shirt.  I really should have taken a picture of the shirt when he got home, darn it! 

I tell him I’m really sorry and that I feel bad but maybe just a small part of me thinks Well, now you know how I feel during the first SEVERAL weeks of nursing… FIVE TIMES!!  Oh, and at least your nipples get a break and can heal… mine had a tiny creature feeding on them every couple of hours.  OUCH! 

Sorry if that was TMI.  But I think next time he’ll sympathize a bit more…

Now where was I?

Oh yes, so he drove himself and K home that afternoon.  We had plenty of time before the game but I had already been busy from the time the boys went down for their naps making treats. 

I had never made these particular recipes before so I was unsure how they might turn out.  Let me tell you… they were SOO good! 

I’m only going to share one for now.  I’ll share the other in a later post.  Just think cheese and bread.  And Sarah, if you’re reading this, think high school!!

But right now think of chocolate chip cookies, Oreos and brownies!  Now think CARAMEL!  Mmmmmm, are you drooling yet?  Yeah, me too.

This is from a recipe I found on Pinterest.  The original post is here.  This is my take on this decadent treat!  Only slightly adapted.

Let’s get started…


Preheat the oven to 350*

The first thing I did was make the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.  I then lined a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and sprayed it with non-stick spray.

(That’s what the original post recommends.  The next time I make it, I think I’ll just spray the pan itself but feel free to do it however you want.)

Then I pressed the cookie dough evenly into the pan.  The whole recipe.


And now you’ll take Oreo cookies and layer them on top of the cookie dough, like so… (you can use regular or double stuf)


I hope you have a brownie mix on hand. 


A normal family-size mix is perfect!  Make it as per the directions and pour over the Oreos.  You’ll probably have to help it spread since brownie batter is quite thick.

Are you dying yet?  My cousin called this a heart attack in a pan. 

Bake it for 45-55 minutes.  Mine took closer to the 55 minute range. 

Once you take it out, let it cool to a comfortable eating temperature and serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce!  You could use hot fudge if you’d like.  Or both!  I won’t tell ;)


This really is best eaten warm but if it cools to room temperature, no worries!  Just stick a piece in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. 

You’ll think you’ve just died and gone to heaven!!

Um.. I'm thinking I'm going to have steer clear of your delicious recipes. The raspberry bread has made several appearances at my home and is killing my eating right plan. Now, you've posted this ever delicious recipe with my favorite ingredient- Oreos! I'm going to slowly back away from the computer and pretend like I've never heard of this. I'm sure I'll dream about it every night.
